why i love working at cwc:
I love to be able to interact with kids from all different ages. My classroom isn't the normal classroom, which is awesome because kids are allowed to "let loose" and that allows me the opportunity to reach them where they are at. My students feel comfortable coming to me with things they are dealing with which is the true reason I was called to be a teacher. God has provided me with the opportunity to impact His children as they search for God's path for them and grow into the men and women he has created them to be.
favorite bible verse:
Psalms 19:14 - "May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing in your sight my Lord, my Rock, and my Redeemer." This verse helps to remind me that in all aspects of life I am a living as an example of Christ and in everything I say and do and in every contact with God's kids I am His light to the world.
